Graphics cards prices continue to fall in large part thanks to the depressing performance of the cryptocurrency market, which has been collapsing as more and more investors continue to sell off reigning digital currencies that include Bitcoin and Ethereum. A demonstration of the latest declines in GPU pricing comes by way of Tom’s Hardware, which tracked the costs of graphics cards over the past two weeks and found notable decreases of as high as 21% in select markets such as eBay, whose users seem to be growing more and more eager of getting rid of their Radeon RX 6950 XTs, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Tis, and other select models with more aggressive pricing. Pricing in the general retail space isn’t anywhere as dramatic but is still commendable, with cards like the GeForce RTX 3080 (12 GB) seemingly available to grab at a $70 discount. Graphics cards prices are predicted to get even lower as manufacturers try to make room for the GeForce RTX 40 and Radeon RX 7000 Series.

Average eBay sold prices have dropped 10% compared to two weeks ago. This is a big drop, and it’s partially offset by higher prices on the RX 6750 XT and RX 6400 — both of which have incredibly low eBay volumes and can therefore be ignored. Actually, all of AMD’s newcomer GPUs are basically unavailable on eBay — if we ignore those, eBay’s sold listing prices actually dropped by 12%.

The Buy it Now column is even more interesting, as it shows the lowest price we were able to find (after we excluded non-functional hardware and fake/bad listings with a Buy it Now option). Nearly every graphics card has a Buy it Now price that’s less than the average sold listing price in the past week — and Buy it Now means there’s no need to deal with the hassle of bidding on an auction. You’re probably still getting a warmed-over mining card that may or may not run well (unless it’s a relatively new model, such as the RTX 3090 Ti), but these cards will get more and more enticing as prices continue to drop.
